A range of exciting entertainment will be on show at the Royal Windsor Rose and Horticultural Society's (RWRHS) summer show which organisers hope will be the 'best ever'.

Traditional jazz band Elite Strollers will be performing at the event on Saturday, July 19 for the second year in a row, joined by Chippy Wood who will be entertaining children and adults with his Punch and Judy show, and a-capella group The Queen's Six.

The show will also feature pianist Babyface Fraspel, also known as Windsor resident Fred Aspel, who will be playing 'pumping' piano rock and 'bangin' boogie woogie as well as some 1950s rhythm and blues for good measure.

Susann Laughton, RWRHS membership secretary, said: "For this year's show we have organised more entertainment, artisan food stalls and high quality traders than ever before and if the sun is out for us it will be the best show ever.

"Having young children myself, I'm pleased that we are able to offer more fun for our younger community members."

The event will be held at St George's School, in the grounds of Windsor Castle.

There will be a bird of prey display at the show and children will have the opportunity to ride ponies.

There will also be kids' touch rugby, run by Windsor-based Scrumys, as well as a bouncy castle, face painting, and Morris dancing.

Telecoms business ComXo, based in Horton Road, Datchet, will be holding a charity challenge at the show and will be raising money by selling home-baked goods, hair styling, a nail bar, henna tattoos and various crafts.

Proceeds will be given to Thames Valley Adventure Playground in Taplow, The Household Cavalry Foundation and Helen & Douglas House.

Tickets for the show are £4 per person or £12 for a family of four, and include free parking for the day.
